Default Re: Ordered A Droid X

I'm loving mine too. Do yourself a favor and pickup beatutiful widgets and launcher pro. After getting rid of motoblur it's been one of the smoothest, fastest phones, I've ever used.

I play a lot of golf, so I picked up the pro version of FreeCadie. This thing finds pin locations within 15 seconds of me starting the app. I watched the same app on the incredible and the vibrant, let's just say it wasn't fair to the other two phones.

While I agree it's a "large" phone, I've never found it to be bulky or in the way. The thinness is sublime. Slides easily in and out of pockets. Swype = <3 and we'll be getting 2.2 by the end of the summer. How awesome is that.

Everyone that bitches about the locked boot loader has apparently never done the "custom rom" or the "custom rom battery pull" dance. Once I get 2.2, my interest in custom roms is nill. We have root, enjoy your free tethering and mostly, enjoy this awesome device.

oh and one last thing, play around with the panorama photos. absolutely amazing. love the video this thing records. love the screen. it's the one of the first times I've been so satisfied with a mobile device.

I was thinking about getting launcher pro actually. I had it on my ally and I loved it. I'm actually liking this motorola ui so far which I didn't expect. Does it make a huge speed difference because its already lightning fast

Nah, I'd say it is slightly smoother than before but the speed is great both ways. Do you get a split second unlock lag? I'm not sure I if that's android or the phone at this point. I did see it is 100 times better on 2.2... just a matter of time i suppose.

Sometimes yes sometimes no on the unlock swipe. It was also present on my
Ally so I think it's an android thing.

I installed Launcher Pro again today and I'm not sure if I'm going to keep it or not. It's nice but I do miss the resizable widgets.

Don't worry my Vibrant gets a split second unlock lag too.
